Epic Games Bringing Fortnite Battle Royale To iOS And Android

Adjust Comment Print

Now it's coming to mobile, with developer Epic Games describing the handheld version as being "the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac".

Starting this Monday, iOS users will be able to sign up for the Invite Event of Fornite Battle Royale.

Epic Games have announced Fortnite Battle Royale is making its way to iOS and Android, with cross-play and cross-progression support. Speaking of PS4, Fortnite on mobile will also have full cross play support between PS4, PC and Mac.

With literally billions of potential players to be found exclusively on such mobile devices, Fortnite could help pave the way for other major 3D games to make the leap to a mobile market that is often unjustly seen as an indie-and-puzzle game backwater. The game has cross-play between PC and Xbox One but doesn't connect PS4 gamers with the lot. The game will continue its worldwide dominance because it will now be released for mobile devices later this year too as announced by Epic Games.

On iOS devices, Fortnite Battle Royale will require iOS 11 and an internet connection.

Are you going to give Fortnite Battle Royale a try on mobile?

The announcement suggests that the Fortnite update will also include the games famous Battle Pass.

By August 2017 it was the most-played game on PC gaming network Steam, according to concurrent player numbers, overtaking even "Dota 2" and "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive", developed by Steam operator Valve Corp.

The game would probably look and perform better on the Nintendo Switch and we can't forget the Unreal Engine, Epic's in-house engine, does run on the Switch so the tools are there. Console quality graphics and action. Android support is set for sometime in the future. No mention of the Xbox One, though, possibly due to the deal with Sony. If you're invited to participate, you'll also receive friend invite codes to share with friends. Can't get home in time for the first match? When you pit those same players against those playing on an iOS or Android using the touchscreen, it might pose a whole new challenge to offer a fair gameplay experience. By bringing the popular title to mobile devices and tablets of course!
